20 cool tools and a game or two


On Thursday, we’re holding a one-day Techno Expo at Broadbeach Branch Library. One of the sessions we’re running is called 20 cool tools for kids and teens, and as the name suggests, we’ve designed it with you in mind!

Come along and discover some great websites and online applications to help you get things done, find information, and just have fun.

The session is on from 4.15pm for an hour. After the session, we’ll post all the links here for you.

And from 5pm – 6.30pm, we’ll have the Nintendo Wii out for some gaming challenges. Drop by the teen area and challenge a librarian to a game of Wii bowling or Super Mario Kart. You might be surprised just how good we are! 😉

Check out the full program for Techno Expo. We’ve got a professional photographer coming along to teach customers how to use their digital cameras better, and one of his sessions (Digital photography: get more out of your digital camera) starts at 3.45pm – perfect timing: straight after school and right before 20 cool tools!

Bookings are essential as these sessions are really popular. Phone Broadbeach Branch Library on 5581 1555 to book.

Hope to see you there!
